Suggest an alternative treatment for constipation

I feel real tired. I can hardly wake up at 7:30 in the morning. I attend class and by afternoon I m exhausted and need to take a nap for several hours. This weekend I was really constipated. I ve never had trouble before. I tried OTC laxatives. That didn t work so I went to urgent care, they gave me a prescription for laxative. I had a bowel movement. I still felt nauseous at times. I ate soft foods for a day. By today I still feel sick when I eat. My abdomen is tender in the middle and left side. I don t or haven t had a fever or sore throat. I don t know why I m not feeling better by now. Only Meds I take are Birth control pills

Hi...can understand your concern...As per your query about having constipation,nauseous and sick feeling is due to side effects of birth control pills which gives side effects like nausea,vomiting,constipation,abdominal bloating etc...Having tenderness in middle and left side of stomach is due to constipation...I suggest you to take a fibre rich diet and whole some fruits to prevent bloating and constipation as natural remedy and beside this you should take laxatives or any stool softener like cremaffin 5-7 ml at bed time till you are on can take omeprazole tables when feeling sick and nauseous..I suggest you to consult a gynaecologist for suggesting some other birth controlling pills by having a proper examination ..I hope the information helps you...Take care..
